Last month,  global multipurpose shipping operator, AAL, loaded this mammoth ACC unit (410MT)  in Changshu aboard its versatile S-Class vessel, AAL Nanjing – a shipment booked by Panalpina Worldwide Transport (Energy Solutions) and destined for Port Hedland via the operator’s popular Australia West Coast Liner Service.

“This cargo is part of a major upgrade project of the South Port Hedland Power Station.  The physical size and extreme weight of this cargo demanded a very comprehensive heavy lift and stowage plan, executed to a tee by our operations team on the ground.  The second unit is loading in Changshu a couple of days before Christmas” said AAL’s Line Manager, Mauro Capano

South Hedland power station (SHPS) is a 150MW combined-cycle natural gas-fired power generation facility being constructed in the Boodarie Resource Industrial Estate, approximately 13km south of Port Hedland, Western Australia. The project aims to meet the growing demand for electricity in the Pilbara region.  Construction of the power station began in February 2015 and the first power is expected in 2017.
